bachelor's degree at the university of massachusetts in amherst but she has concerns about the future. >> education is really important, but it's kind of where do you go from here. i feel like it's kind of like hopelessness. >> tom juravich is profferer in massachusetts writing about workers in the american workplace for over 25 years. his most recent book is about the struggling working class. >> we have this notion called the american dream. the dream has been for so many of us, that life would be better for our children. my dad was a factory worker, sent his three kids to state universities. we all went forward never to look back. >> what do you think about the american dream. >> it's a nightmare, a distraction, dream, fantasy. it's not realistic. >> it's not realistic, she says, because jobs are hard to find. good ones, almost impossible. >> we watched our parents get successful jobs. we watched our parents be able to maintain a life in line with the house and picket fence. now it's our time to do this and it's not materializing. the cost of things have risen but wages have stayed
by the massachusetts health reform and affordable care act. professor of economics, mr. grubaer, good morning. >> good to be here. >> you have been quoted in numerous places as saying this idea of fixing this issue for those on the individual market or getting these policy cancellations and policies they would like to keep, saying going down that road is a road that could unravel the law. explain this to me. >> let's start with understanding. we are not talking about the vast majority of americans. this law is those who lose employer insurance and government insurance alone. it's a small minority on the way to the individual market. it's 40%. >> still millions of people. >> exactly. 12 million people and about a 30 will end up paying more under the law. that as you said is the idea. we currently have highly discriminatory systems. if you are going to be sick or get sick, you cannot get health insurance. the only way to end that system is to bring everyone into the system and pay a fair price. that means the winner who is have been paying a low price now will have to pay more. we will have a system whe
, that in the first couple of months in massachusetts, and that's really the only precedent we had, there were only a couple of thousand people who signed up. we also know about the very troubled rollout of the prescription drug site. we do know that fixes could be made. one thing we also know is that if you put a bill on the floor, and that's what i challenge speaker boehner to do, put a bill on the floor to fix it and see if that doesn't devolve into another appeal. remember where they began. first they undermined it. then they tried to repeal it. now they're trying to sabotage it. one of the problems we're having now is that they're having to take money from other parts of hhs because the appropriators have not in fact funded what needed to be done with this site. one of the changes i think that's going to have to happen is that the public is not going to action i believe, be forced to pay a fine if the website isn't up and if the whole thing isn't running more smoothly. i don't think anybody wants to put this over on the public. but nobody for one second believes that my committee, which is now
someone who was an adviser involved, jonathan gruber, an economics professor at the massachusetts institute of technology and behind the massachusetts health care plan, romney care as you may know. so mr. gruber, professor gruber, these numbers are rather disappointing, i would think. do you think that the administration is going to be able to get the website up and running enough to make the 7 million enrollee projection needed by the spring? >> you know, i don't agree with the characterization it's disappointing. i think they're meaningless. look, when we open our system in massachusetts the first month the people could pay premiums and enroll, 123 people enrolled. by the end of the year, it was 36,000. that meant we got .3% of the people the first month. by that state the federal government did great, 1.3% of the people the first month. it's too early to say anything useful. the real deadline we have to focus on is march of next year. that's when the individual mandate kicks in. that's when people need to be signed up and what we saw in massachusetts was a large rush before the
massachusetts. ms. warren: i ask that the quorum call be lifted. the presiding officer: without objection. ms. warren: and i ask for permission to speak as if in morning business. the presiding officer: without objection. ms. warren: thank you. madam president, it hasn't been even a month since the end of the government shutdown and they are already back trying to paralyze the government again. yesterday the kwepbz -- republicans blocked a up-or-down vote on the nomination of nina pilllard. this filibuster comes one week after the republicans filibustered the nomination of patricia millett to the d.c. circuit and less than a year after republicans filibustered caitlin halligan who eventually gave up and withdrew her nomination. republicans now hold the dubious distinction of having filibustered all three women that president obama nominated to the d.c. circuit. now, collectively these women have diverse experiences in private practice, in government and in public interest law. between them, they have argued an amazing 45 cases before the supreme court and have participated in many more. all t
reporters that when the state of massachusetts passed its own law, enrollment there started very slowly, just 123 people in the first month. >> we know experience in the bay >> wooduff: mary agnes carey of kaiser health news is with us again tonight. it's an editorially independent news organization. mary agnes, welcome back to the program. so what did we learn today from the administration's official release of these numbers? >> well, they're lower than expected. administration officials for days, for weeks, have been trying to dampen expectations. these numbers would be great, and they certainly were not. of the 10 6,000 people that have enrolled, you have about a quarter of those through the federal exchanges, and those are in 36 states. that's really a big chunk of states that are being run by the federal government, the exchanges, and then the remaining three-fourths were three the state exchanges set up in about 15 states and the district of column ja. >> woodruff: three to one that number reflects the state exchanges. to what extension is this consistent with what the administrat

the northeast, we've been seeing snow in places like massachusetts, as well as in new york state, in d.c., as well. that's going to start to improve from thursday. we've got high pressure across much of canada and the u.s. today, making for some freeze warnings down in the deep south. your early hours of the morning, wednesday morning, very cold. from thursday, we should start to see things improving. some southerly winds managing to come up and temperatures will improve there. as for the northwest, well, you've got a small system coming in here bringing some showers for the coast and also up in the mountains. some snow showers. it's nothing very intense, but at the weekend there will be a more intense system moving in. down towards the southeast of mexico, heavy rain. most of it falling over the water, but coastal areas will be quite unsettled. wednesday, 5 degrees in toronto, as well as new york city. 8 degrees in d.c., chicago, 3 degrees, 9 in oklahoma city. these temperatures are set to improve from thursday and then into the rest of the work week. on into europe. and things are st
. the medical center in massachusetts. the american civil liberties union say he's being maltreated in prison. here to explain, a criminal defense attorney and an attorney and co-host of "the five" so why is this thug complaining? what's the problem? >> he's saying that these restrictions are excessive and interfering with his right to represent himself. the fact that he's kept in sol te solitary. the person that put the restrictions in place is our own attorney general, eric holder. he did that on august 27th. so the problem is they're saying and aclu is joining in on this with mr. tsarnaev's lawyer saying these are undue restrictions. >> he's isolated from the other prisoners. >> solitary confinement. >> number two, all of his communications are monitored because he's a terrorist. he's a terrorist. is there anything else? >> the other one that's important is attorneys are forbidden from releasing information to outside sources. these are common measures put in place in terrorist cases. >> not a gag order on the attorney. >> it happens in many cases. it's not out of the question. >> in this
at the massachusetts rollout, the massachusetts rollout was just as meager. >> this is not about a website, this poll question, number two. president obama telling americans they could keep their health care plans. he knowingly lied. 50% of those polled in the fox poll, 40% he didn't know. >> well, we know he knew. eric cantor is touting this clip of video from the white house meeting where obama says flat out, seven or eight million people will have to lose their insurance. they knew. the white house aides debated whether he could say this and were overruled by the political people who said he had to say it to help sell the thing. "the new york times" which has been in delicious agony trying to figure out how to characterize what were in effect blatant lies by the president -- >> let me pause there. "the new york times" quote today. the split between lawmakers and the white house reflects the dilemma the president finds himself in as he seeks to follow through on last week's acknowledgement about his incorrect promise on health care coverage of t coverage. hundreds of thousands of people have receiv
people and sickened 751 in 20 states. this issue hits home for me because it started in massachusetts. at the center of this tragedy was the new england compounding center, also known as necc, and it was located in framingham, massachusetts. i met some of these victims of this terrible outbreak and heard about their struggles, like jerry cohen, a resident of pik pikesville, maryland, who went to the doctor for routine steroid injections to treat recurring back pain and received two doses that came from the contaminated lots. jerry suffered a stroke and had to adjust to a new life, dealing with dizziness, nausea, weakness and exhaustion. or melanie, whose mother went into a tennessee hospital to treat an acute back injury she suffered while mowing the lawn. instead of walking out of the hospital, marjorie instead became severely sick, spent months in the hospital and a nursing home and now has permanent -- permanent nerve damage and medical bills that are close to putting her into bankruptcy. for the last decade, complaints aboutsteabout sterility have bed benz necc yet the company was

military and veterans roundtables in massachusetts with holly petraeus, head of cfpb head of office of affairs. one issue for veterans is a growing scam involving the v.a.'s aid and attendance benefit, the benefit that helps cover the cost of nursing homes and in-home health aides for our disabled vets who don't have many resources. now, from what i understand the details of this scam are really grisly. a company offers to help a veteran sign up for the benefits. if the company determines the veteran has too many assets to qualify for the benefits, it tries to hide some of those assets by moving them to irrevocable trust or annuity that not only violates the spirit of the program, it often ends up hurting the veteran. the company generally charges huge fees, takes a fat cut of whatever financial product they end up selling to the veteran and moves the assets where the vets can't easily reach them meaning the veteran is actually in much worse financial shape than before the person applied for help. i understand one case where a veteran got set up with an annuity that wouldn't start p

the state and federal marketplaces, 106,000, in this document as you point out the massachusetts model, remember romney care, the president had used so many times before as an example saying it was a model. they have figures here that contend that the rate of sign up was slower then. people have until march 31st to sign up through these marketplaces. there are a lot of people talking about extending that deadline and so far the administration is not budget on that. mike. >> mike viqueira, at the white house, thank you. >>> those who were fixing the troubled website were in the hot seat at capitol hill. lisa stark joins us from capitol hill with that part of the story. todd park was the man on the hot seat today. how did he respond to some of the stinging criticism he faced? >> well, he's the u.s. chief technology officer, and he was testifying under subpoena because the white house argued that he was too busy to come up here. he was subpoenaed so he did come to testify. he said it was frustrating, and he continues to insist that they're working around the clock to make the fixes. he
may face a challenge in the primaries. they are talking about elizabeth warren out of massachusetts as the potential recipient of liberal money to take the challenge. is there a chance? >> i think the liberal left is looking for a prospect. it is republicans that should be excited about it. the biggest fear on the right is that it is a karn nation with hillary clinton. they will battle it out like last time around and she gets to be anointed. if she has a primary challenge it will force hillary clinton to run to the left. >> given the fact that the first three states in iowa, new hampshire and south carolina two of which haare very strong in e it is of socialish oo yous, aren't the republicans going to force -- if chris christie runs won't he be forced to the right? >> we need to point out there was a new poll out that had christie against hillary clinton. i p can't image chris christie would be the choice here. i can't image they would run any one against hillary clinton. the lead said liberal leaders, why would liberal leaders want to mess with that or say look they thought about

months as they did in massachusetts which enrolled only .3% or 123 people in its first month. we know from experience in the bay state that people tend to research and consider their options, talk things over with their families before making a purchase. this data represents only a month into a sustained six month enrollment and outreach effort. >> that's the headline from the news conference the phone conference. here is what is going to happen going forward here. secretary sebelius, it's our belief, will be answering questions from reporters. so we have their take on all of this. we know their take on all of this. news when people ask questions on this matter on this phone conference. our producers are monitoring that here on the fox news deck should anything of interest that we think might effect you or your lives come up, we will get to that right away. >>> the breaking news out of pittsburgh continues to -- continues to come in. new information on this shooting that's happened at brashear high school. i believe we still have some arterials coming. in these last glance kdka news a
, but they're better than the massachusetts numbers were in the first month. they're higher percentage of the uninsured who bought insurance. a lot of people are browsing. we know they're going to buy, much later. so those -- that's -- those are good numbers. i don't -- you know, it goes back to what the president said, and that now that we parse it, it wasn't true. and that's what's causing the trouble. if those -- if those representations hadn't been made, i don't think we would be having this controversy. but for president clinton to make it sound like, you know, it was written into the law that -- if you liked your policy you can keep it, to make it sound like the federal government made this promise, that's really not what happened. >> i also think stupidity and stubbornness are a horrible recipe. and so i don't know where else in people's lives they would fight to keep some crappy thing they have to pay monthly for when they are offered something better for the same price. >> that's not what's happening with everybody though of the. >> i a lot of people don't realize their plans
